that these revenues that you seek also come from the creativity of individuals that create technology, the kind of technology that needs to be acquired by the technology industry, for example. also many other sources of revenue. we just want to point out that sometimes the talented scientists and clinicians of the nih feel hampered by some of the policies and rules that come our way. we offer our help in any way that we can to try to work together with you to figure out ways to ensure the maximum creativity of a federal scientists so that the american people can get the most of their investment. >> thank you. we all have to be at the table. we need your input. we have tried to work with the same set of facts. there is 1.2 trillion dollars of tax expenditures, that was a one-year number. the problem we have with sequestration is that it is two trillion over 10 years. the annual tax expenditure number is 10 times that amount. the upper 1% of income earners in this country get about 25% of tax expenditure benefits. so, there is room for changes in our tax code that will be encouraged the type of c

are still without a plan that was originally envisioned. arizona border's technology development remains in question. according to the jo, the department does not have the information necessary to support the estimated $1.5 billion plan, which is the successor to the council's multibillion-dollar fbi net. the department has not demonstrated the effectiveness in deploying surveillance technology. the jo also found that $1.5 billion cost estimate may not be reliable. if this new plan goes awry, the department will have spent over two billion dollars in an attempt to develop technology with little more to show them cancel programs and canceled checks the contractors. this is but one example why the department must go through this acquisition system, to improve how it does its job analysis and make sure we have a better way of purchasing technology. the new administration has made some improvement, the newly created accountability and risk- management designed to manage the oversight acquisition program appears to be a step in the right direction. i am concerned only 45 staff in this office

about it. that helps it -- us think through the problem. technology is still really important. the biggest challenge for the army from a technology perspective is this trade-off between mobility, survivability, and lethality. we found in afghanistan and iraq, because of low-tech weapons we lost our survivability. sorry tom a -- sorry, because we had to focus on mobility. we had to stay on roads. from a technological standpoint, we need people to start thinking about this. we need development and materials, we need to develop new ideas and how we can conduct operations and lethal operations. the last thing we talk about is -- leadership is the key going forward. i believe that in the future, it is about intergovernmental multinational environment. it is the ability of her leaders to operate in this environment, -- our leaders to operate in this environment and be able to move through this. what i have learned in the last 10 years is, it is not about what happened. it is about why it happened. once you figure out why it happened, you can come up with the right combination of sol

and something is wrong with technology that it is not working in the marketplace. i had solar panels on my house in tennessee as a test keys thursday as a test case 30 + years ago. they're looking to see if we could get enough heat units per day in solar panels. we never got enough to run our hot water heater. we were happy to do it and see if it worked. we are saying let's bring things to the marketplace that will work but let's let the market decided it does not have to be taxpayer money that is being used as venture capital to see if unproven technologies are going to work. host: "from the washington post." what do you think of those proposals? guest: i think we need to look very carefully at wind power. are we generating a lot of wind power and the answer to that is, across the country, some areas are successful and some are not. you take our area in tennessee and you look at tva and the electric power generation source and see what you are pulling in that electric power generation bred from wind power and it is a miniscule amount, even on the best days. you have to questioned that. you'll n

he talks about. but his focus is not just about digital technology. he is taking the venerable institution and journalism and looking at them informed by his deep knowledge of digital technology and also with a different set of values that are more traditional. it is my great pleasure to welcome you here. the changing media landscape, smart news in the age of social media. glad to have you. >> thank you. [applause] it is particularly nice to be back across the street from the house where we started facebook nine years ago yesterday. february 4, 2004, is where we open it up. we woke up and there were hundreds of people on it already. and i thought i would talk a little bit to give you a context on what we are doing at "the new republic" and how i see the digital media landscape in 2013 and then open it up for questions and hopefully get a good dialogue going. the first question people ask me all the time is, why would someone like you buy this 100- year-old media institution like "the new republic" in an age when the wisdom is, print is dying, serious journalism is under threat,

technology, mobile brand -- broadband providers. i am sure all the smartphones and tablets of of the trucking industry and oil and gas is probably using more. anything the panel can say generally about the continued growth in mobile broadband and technology generally? >> certainly from a trucking perspective, gas, it has been absolutely critical to our industry over the last decade or so. the days of drivers going to pay phones and calling in to find the next load, now it pops up and tell them exactly where to go and when to be there and so forth. i think there is still a lot of penetration -- the penetration is probably not all the way there yet in trucking and there are a lot of opportunities. that is something they are willing to invest in and because it impacts their bottom-line. >> i would agree. the ability of well drillers to capture what is going on in terms of logs and distributed to a central location for analysis , and understanding what is going on, is really central to moving forward to develop our energy resources much more quickly and efficiently. >> when bob mentioned payphone

us think through the problem. you know, in terms of technology -- you know, technology is still really importantly. you know, for the army, the biggest challenge we have from a technology perspective is this tradeoff between mobility, survivability and lethalbility. and what we found in afghanistan and iraq, because of low tech weapons, we lost our survivability. excuse me, we lost our mobility, because we had to focus on survivability. and so our ability to be mobile was taken away from us, because we had to put so much stuff on our existing vehicles, it may them heavy, they were no longer maneuverable. they had to stay on roads. that's not what we need in the future. from a technological standpoint, we need development in materials, we need to develop new ideas in how we can conduct operations and lethal operations, be more mobile and the last thing is is that we talk about is this is why i focus on leadership. in my mind, leadership is the keep going forward. -- key going forward and it's because i believe that in the future, it's about the joint interagency, intergovernmenta

out a way to change it. with the rapid advances in technology, from a daily basis ,cyber-bullying, how much worse is that going to be in another 10 years? we have lost the ability to communicate with our children. how many of you ask your children each day when they get home from school, "how was your day?" what is their standard answer? "fine, good, okay." and then what? they get on the computer, do their homework, whatever. that is not communicating. they tell us that because that is what they think we want to hear. they don't think we really care. around thet dinner supper table anymore. we eat in front of the television. it is time we actually sit down and hold those conversations with our children. we ask those hard questions. "how was your day today? what good thing happened to you? what bad thing happened?" we have got to learn to communicate with our kids again. i spoke in front of a group of 300 school counselors a while back. i asked how many of them were ever bullied or picked on. over 300 people in there, 270 had their hand in the air. i told them if they were bullied this
